What You Guys Rate This Work?


I have seen these floors just over 3 months ago , I just felt in love with it. I would give a huge discount if I have an opportunity to do such a work in USA- probably I need to get couple masters from over there to show me the tricks.

Not rate--appreciate. I've never figured out if great work tile/stonework is easy or not.

Looks great, I like the design. From the way the reflection looks in pic 4 it seems they may have been ground and polished in place - which takes a little bit of the skill required out of the equation, but not much.

IMO....design is what separates people most in the trades. Everything else is production work...and there's plastic for that.

The above is just materials and layout--but not everyone can pull it off and those that do, don't make it look that hard. There definitely looks like some surface work done, but still, it's gotta be there to do that.

The folks that are given that floor by the architects have long ago proven their skills. Any surface stuff is just that. I'd guess those tradesmen were in it for 2-3 years before they were allowed to touch a trowel--no 1 month laborer, 2 month helper, no such thing as a finisher, so now a setter, aka tile professional.

Not me--I only have jeans and t-shirts. May have two flannels though. I'd go there and they'd ask me what I wanted at the door.

Funny, we were all in jeans or khakis and some other tables, quite fancy but everyone is welcomed there, bill wasn't that bad either,actually was much better than Olive Garden here.
Food was to die for....

I do love the second world as they're not as tied into appearances of their clientele--as long as they look western. There is an honesty there and moreso in the third world.

But speaking of honesty, some bars in black areas of urban areas don't allow jeans....unless you're white.

It's all business and the world is business.

Very cool you had that experience.

Hawaiian shirts, cargo shorts & Keens is all you'll find me out in...

If an establishment don't like the way I look...

My money will spend just fine some where else....

Come on, now you've never stuck it in their face?

I went to a place one time that I'd been to a few times before, but this time I wore my cowboy hat and the DB at the door, asked me something silly, like "can I help you?". I told him I was there to fix the plumbing.....

Sometimes ya just gotsta say something......

Sometimes....
I was with a woman that liked that place, so I continued. I knew they would overcook seafood because I had tried it there before. Long story short--a few cross room comments between tables (that was amusing), they overcooked the seafood I ordered.

They comp'd our meal (again) and when we were leaving, in front of the line to get in, I gave my waitress a tip that would have been half of our bill as I stated I had no idea why someone would eat there with such low quality food.
